Letters to the Editor

A win/win for the Columbiana County Port Authority

To the editor: Without hesitation, I am confident the latest realignment of personnel concerning the Columbiana County Port Authority is an absolute win/win not only for the Port Authority but Columbiana County as a whole. I am referring to former Land Bank Director Robert (Bobby) Ritchey ...

Racism must not be tolerated

To the editor: Perhaps you have seen the black and white signs posted on the grounds of St. Patrick Church in Leetonia: Racism is a Sin. Period. These were created by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, the Catholic religious community to which we belong. We are a congregation of vowed ...

A different kind of COVID-19 impact

To the editor: I know for many people this subject doesn't cross their mind. But for myself it is on my mind every day. I watch the US news and the Canadian news to see if their has been any word on the border opening. I live in Lisbon (Guilford Lake) and my fiancee' lives in Windsor, ...

During times of turmoil, trust in the Lord

To the editor: I have been thinking about all the things that have happened in the last four months. The virus and all the new words I have learned like "virtual," "stay at home," "the new normal," and so many others. What has gotten into us? We have protests for almost anything. Some want to ...

Standing behind a family that has stood up for animals

To the editor: My first contact with Alchemy Acres Animal Sanctuary (AAAS) was after I bought my first house and wanted my very own first dog. I called to make an appointment and when I went in the girl working spent quite a few hours trying to find us the right one. “Romeo” ended up being ...

Thankful for reopening of Firestone Pool

To the editor: Thank you for opening Firestone Pool for the 2020 season. It’s wonderful to know that the residents of Columbiana have a place to go swimming this summer. Decisions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have ruined so many things this year. However, those tasked with the ...

Reaction to comments by Wellsville officials

To the editor: I am disappointed to learn of the reaction that certain Wellsville officials have had in learning that their recent CDBG application had not been funded. As my office provides guidance to the commissioners regarding the CDBG program, I thought it important to help set the record ...

Keep the demon of selfishness behind bars

To the editor: In an old episode of “The Twilight Zone,” a man sees a guy in a prison cell and is strictly warned not to let him out. He is told the guy is the devil but only sees an innocent man. Feeling himself justified and the bearded old men as crazy, he defies orders and released ...

Please stop all of the hate

To the editor: When I saw George Floyd dying under four cops, my heart broke for his family. This is evil working but we can’t judge all the cops in our country the same way. Lots of cops in our country are not like them. They keep the law. They love people and they love to serve. The want ...
